Pokémon Unite: A New Co-op Battle Game Announced

A new multiplayer strategy Pokémon game titled Pokémon Unite has just been announced. This game will come to both Nintendo Switch and mobile devices as free-to-start, with no release date confirmed at this time.

Following up on its tease from last week’s Pokémon Presents, The Pokémon Company has just aired another presentation that focused on its newest project, Pokémon Unite. This new strategy game plays similarly to a MOBA, such as DOTA 2, in which players compete in 5v5 teams to score points by defeating and capturing Pokémon.

Pokémon Unite is developed in partnership with TiMi Studios (best known for its work on League of Legends), the game has each player controlling a single Pokémon that can attack wild Pokémon found all over the stage. Defeating a Pokémon captures it and earns points, which players can then drop off at specific areas within the arena. Each team controls one side of the field, with both having the capability to cross into each other’s side to attack.

Defeating Pokémon will also cause your Pokémon to level up, which in turn allows you to equip more moves. Similar to the mainline games, leveling up enough will lead to your Pokémon evolving as well as gaining access to Unite moves that have various effects.

Pokémon Unite is merely the latest in a slew of announcements for the Pokémon franchise, as The Pokémon Company recently debuted other games such as New Pokémon Snap and Pokémon Café Mix in last week’s presentation.
